husband: “Let’s name him Bo”
me: “Absolutely not”
A few months later, we welcomed our second child, Bo Andrew. I hadn’t originally planned to do Bo’s newborn photos because I am my own worst critic, but with the holidays around and my mom in town, we decided I should take a stab at it. Remember my dear friend, Audrey Michel, I told y’all about in my blog, LETTING THE TRIFECTA COME TOGETHER FOR MANUAL MODE? She did my firstborn’s, Bane’s, photos to absolute perfection and I will forever be grateful to her. Here are a few of my favorites:
I wanted Bo’s photos to have the same look and feel as Bane’s, so I went through them and prepared myself. First, I loved the photos with the bright light behind us, so I knew I’d need to overexpose them a bit as to wipe out the lines in the windows. So, remember that meter I talked about a few posts back? I did a few practice shots at my window allowing my meter to go towards the + sign in my camera. Second, I wanted to use all natural light. I made sure I was shooting in the morning when the sun would be shining perfectly through the windows. Here are how the photos turned out, what do you think?
WHOA! Sorry for the photo overload! Do y’all think I captured the same feel? I hope so! Audrey did an outstanding job with Bane’s newborn photographs and I can only hope to be as talented and skilled as she is one day!
Now, I will end with my favorite photos.
haha!! I’m so excited to watch these boys grow up wrestling & loving each other!
p.s. Can you believe how much my boys look alike? I’m going to have to write dates and names on all of my photos so I don’t get them mixed up!
